It was the shortest of work days for Milos Raonic.
But it was enough to put him into the second round of the grass-court Grand Slam tournament in London.
The 21-year-old tennis whiz from Thornhill, Ont., spent barely two minutes on the court at Wimbledon Wednesday, wrapping up a first-round win over Santiago Giraldo of Colombia in a first-round match that was halted by rain on Tuesday. Raonic won his service game to close out the 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 win and move on to a second-round meeting with American Sam Querrey, who ousted Canada's Vasek Pospisil in the opening round.
"I warmed up a bit long this morning," Raonic said. "Normally I start matches serving well, so I was not too nervous."
Raonic, seeded 21st in the tournament, is a safe bet to make it into the third round, where he would play either 16th-seeded Marin Cilic of Croatia or Lukasz Kubot of Poland. He plays Querrey Thursday on Wimbledon's Court No. 1.
Aleksandra Wozniak of Blainville, Que., will also be looking for a berth in the third round Thursday against 25th-seeded Jie Zheng of China.
